With the size and stature of main dishes becoming larger and larger in QRS’s there’s an even larger emphasis on side choices for those of us looking to keep the calories down.  A side order of fries could put you back a few days on your diet if you’re not careful. Luckily for us, places like Wendy’s gives you options for sides other than fries on your combo meal. What is probably the healthiest and some may say the tastiest option is their Chili. 

Going with the small chili as your side hits you with 210 calories and 6 grams of fat.  But the best part of the Chili is the 6 grams of fiber and 17 grams of protein in this side size.  Compare this to the 320 calories and 16 grams of fat in small, I repeat SMALL fries, you’re heading in the right direction.  Pair this Wendy’s Ultimate Chicken Grill or their new Smoky Honey Mustard Grilled Chicken Flatbread and you’ve got a tasty, nutritious meal. Just keep an eye on the sodium if you’re watching it, both pack 980 mg of sodium.
